Omg LJ I feel for u :praying: are u ok sweetie? We are here for u through the good and bad so feel free the yell, cry or rant.

AFM It's only DPO 7 but my chart looks speciously like my July chart which obviously was a BFN! :cry: I'm really scared right now but trying not to stress ..... I'm sure some of this has to do with the fact I turn 42 on tuesday.

On a different note, here's a little rant .... Really WTF I am going to my IN LAWS for a birthday breakfast for me??? For real..... What was my DH thinking ???

Hello Ladies,

Jules -so glad to hear that you are doing okay. Hope you were able to have a fun birthday! Yes, chemical pregnancy in March and TTC since January. I hope your good attitude rubs off on me!!

Shanessa -are you close to your O day? I think I remember you saying you weren't in the 2ww...... Hope you are doing well!

TTC#2 -Absolutely thought about you last Sunday morning. Sounds like things went well..... Keeping my fingers crossed for you. Have a great birthday on Tuesday -mine is 2 weeks after yours, also turning 42.....

Tiffany -where are you in all of this? Any symptoms? I think we are just about the same day in our cycles.....

AFM -Feeling a bit like this just isn't going to happen. 8 DPO and absolutely no symptoms. I know we haven't been trying for so long, but it is so hard to deal with this 2ww. Over the last few months, each time, I get a little hopeful and then nothing. Not feeling so hopeful this time. I am just hating living my life in 2 week segments.... Sorry for the rant, but I think you girls understand!

Best wishes, everyone!

Hoopla don't be silly girl, this the place to rant, cry, laugh, support each other, we deal with it all!

LJ I'm glad u have such a good attitude, I try to also but sometimes catch my self on a downward spiral. As for your question when will I test, I refuse to test before my birthday, I was thinking more like DPO12 at least to give myself a chance so that would be next Friday. I have to call the clinic with my test results 2 weeks after IUI so i may just hold off until DPO14. My typical luteal phase is 15DPO But with the fertility drugs and the progesterone x 2 daily who knows how long it will be. Im just waiting for the ultimate birthday gift. We conceived our DS on our 6th anniversary so who knows .....

Didn't realize this thread was here...sorry girls!

Lj, so sorry! But onward to cycle 9:)!!!

Ttc, wow..I so hope you get your ultimate bday gift!!! Fx for you :)!!

Hoopla, how are you now? Any testing???

Afm, 7dpo with mild cramping & boob stuff still:)! Could be a great thing then again could just be progesterone...who knows:(. I start testing tomorrow! It's my moms bday and I would LOVE to share a bfp with her, it would make her year. My stepdad also finds out his colonoscopy results that they are worried about:(. He had colon cancer last year so he is very high risk:(. She needs this as much as me! Also, dh & I have decided to stop drugs after this cycle...that too is a heavy burden on my shoulders. I don't want to feel like I am giving up (and I'm not) but we can't deal with emotional side effects anymore. They are just worse then before dd:(. Ugh...fx ladies please!!!

Good morning (or afternoon depending on where you are) ladies:

LJ - First let me say, it was a pleasure riding the journey with you...even though it is not yet over. I am soooo frustrated with your chart. It looks so damn good. Yours has never been this encouraging. :x Sorry to rant on your behalf. Just kills me really. Happy Belated Birthday :balloons: I am still going to be hopeful for you (stubborn me!)

Tiff - missed you for a couple of days. You can hang with me with the no drugs! But I am hopeful that will be a moot point for you since you are already preggers! :shh: (no jinx)!

TTC2 - I will say happy birthday :balloons: to you now in case I forget tomorrow! If you can stand it, it will probably be best to test closer to day 15 (maybe 14 like you said) so that maybe you get a definitive result. I am keeping my fingers crossed for you! :fingers crossed:

Hoola - Rant, rant RANT! :) Yeah the 2WW sucks. Come to think of it the 2W prep for O sucks too! :) As for sxs, I felt nothing when I found out I was pregnant with DS so you just don't know. Hang in there hun.

AFM - CD14 for me. I am in the 2WW - NOT! I know what I am waiting for...:af: And unless she gets stuck in traffic she should be here next Tuesday. :| I had a double surge around O this cycle. I last had this in 2007 when I got pregnant with DS and delivered two placentas. So I suspect I might have released two eggs this cycle (happens as we age, I understand). So I guess I missed out on two chances this cycle. :( No matter, this cycle was supposed to be about improving my repro organs and overall body so I am still focused on that.

Listen, at least one of you needs to have a :bfp: this cycle. I am so ready to celebrate for someone!! :happyforyou: You all have such good chances, so who is it going to be? :wave:

Tiff - looks like it was 12dpo for your last BFN so 8 (and 9 in case you tested today) is very early. Wait until Friday to test again...if you can. I dare you! :wink: I am so sorry for the health issues facing your family. Try not to let it get on top of you. :(

LJ - Damn and double damn. :shh: :( I do hope this was a warm up cycle for you.

TTC2 - Knew I would forget your bday. Hope you had a blast. Happy belated :balloons: I know you said you were going to wait, so let us know when you test.

Hoopla - anything to report :)

AFM - Nothing :roll: Have a good day ladies!

HI all,

Thought I'd jump into the conversation about my tww... Had my third IUI last Sunday, Sep. 9, so am dying to POAS! I was calm my first try, slightly anxious my second, and not sure how I feel this third time around. I've had cramps and bloating from day 1. I think my BB are a little sore, but that may be wishful thinking :) I turn 42 in a few weeks and am not looking forward to the feelings that are going to accompany that. Yeesh. Thanks for letting me get that off my (slightly sore?) chest :)
